Thursday, 27 Oct. 1994 / Festsaal Messe Basel
In his project PLAY BACH, Jacques Loussier became world famous as the first person to combine jazz and classical music. Only very few people know that Loussier himself is a great composer who has written music for over 100 films, or that he is open to new music styles and accompanied Pink Floyd on the piano in album productions. At the last Munich Piano Summer, PLAYADES was performed for the first time and was received with frenetic applause. The Symphony Orchestra was accompanied and led by Monsieur Loussier himself. The first half of the evening was PLAYADES, then in the second half, PLAY BACH live in Basel on 27 October 1994.
